Khune still not at full fitness


Kaizer Chiefs captain and goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune, will not be able to play for his team until after the Christmas break, due to a foot injury sustained in September. He has however commenced with light training.

"He's not back in serious training, mostly jogging and gym work," Chiefs coach, Stuart Baxter said.

"I think he will pick up speed soon with the intensity of his training, but we are not going to rush him back.

"It is a process we need to manage carefully. Once he is back he is going to need to get game time and so we'll have to get a lot of matches organised for him before we resume the league in February," added the coach.

Chiefs Midfielder, George Maluleka, has returned to full training after suffering from a groin injury, sustained during a match against Ajax Cape Town on the 19th of October.

He will now be included in the starting 14 for their Premier Soccer League (PSL) match against Mamelodi Sundowns at the FNB Stadium this coming weekend.
